Abbygail Marshall receives Iola Shirlaw Music Education Scholarship.

Meet Abbygail Marshall! She is the recipient of the Iola Shirlaw Memorial Music Education Scholarship. She is the daughter of Kevin and Anissa Marshall.

Abbygail told us:
I am going to the University of Nebraska at Kearney this fall to study music for a degree in Music Education. I've played violin since I was in the fifth grade and I look forward to advancing my skills while also learning other instruments. I joined band my sophomore year of high school, and played in the percussion section, specifically on the mallets. After college, I can see myself doing many things. Whether that be teaching elementary music, or middle school orchestra, I trust God to lead me in the right direction.

Congratulations Abbygail! NPPSF wishes you the best of luck in your future!

The family of Iola Shirlaw gives this scholarship in memory of their mother who was a Music Educator.
